Meet the #DNC Delegates: Sabrina Fedrigo

sabrinaIn the interest of full disclosure, I have known Sabrina since she was a child.

Sabrina Fedrigo is a Bernie Sanders delegate from Pennsylvania’s Sixth Congressional District. She is a college student and part-time nanny. She lives in Collegeville with her boyfriend, their two dogs, three cats and a chinchilla.

DocJess: When did you first decide to support Bernie Sanders?

Sabrina Fedrigo: Back in July 2015, I was only really hearing about Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton and I didn’t think either of them really represented my values. I took the “I Side With” quiz, and found I was aligned with Bernie Sanders. Then I researched him and found he spoke truth about education and income inequality. I really respect him for speaking the truth on important issues. I started going to the local organizing meetings and I applied to be a delegate. I was chosen as one of the candidates to run for delegate at an organizing meeting in Philadelphia in January of this year.
